    It's been challenge at times but overall I'm learning more about my own footprint, the community I live in  and other areas of the Planet. I'm looking at ways, to put more of what I've learned into practice.

    one of my challenges has been to read up on all the home cleaning products, we use in our house. I thought we had a lot of clean chemical free products but as I discovered doing some research - the label says eco clean  - the ingredient s actually say something else. Eye opening...
